thing is, i'm only seeding right now, i've always got a couple seeds going, and rarely download (i use ftp) but it still tops out at 40 kb/s upload even when i'm not downloading anything. how do i find out what my max upload could much up-bandwidth my connection can handle? i'm sick of doing three shows and like 12/s.

any ideas?


There are a bunch of online bandwidth testers. Do a google for "bandwidth test" or something like that. I say this because some of them seem way off, so it's best to use a few of them so you get a good idea. I don't have any bookmarked, or I'd post a link.
